SEE IT: Lamar runs past Eagles defense for a 37-yard TD run originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
Sometimes, Lamar Jackson doesn't need anyone else.
One drive after taking an ill-advised sack for a loss that took Baltimore out of field goal range against Philadelphia, Jackson more than made up for it. First, with this dazzling 25-yard run inside his own 20 to set up an even more electrifying carry later on in the drive.
When Jackson gets free of the defensive front line it's lights out for the opposition. That again proved to be true when the former Louisville standout faked out the defense with a play action and took full advantage of the open lane.
There are after burners, and there are Jackson's after burners. It's a whole different ballgame really.
The Eagles defense can try to prepare with Jalen Hurts all they want on the scout team, nobody is emulating Jackson's natural speed.
